Wow, a lot of the 2+2 internet poker pros are flaming out now. Partly it's because the games are drying up, but also it's because a lot of them weren't actually that great, they just ran hot, and then they were sloppy with their money, lent it to friends, lived the "balla" lifestyle, took shots at the higher games and lost; lots of them do coke and play poker, the cost of the coke isn't really significant but the cost of feeling strung out and overconfident and taking your roll to the top games can be very steep when you stop running hot. Of all the kids who made $100k+ last year, very few of them actually have the humility and discipline and control and money management to be long term winners.
